The Lab Lounge

Stereo 8 (march21) erases the mystique surrounding contemporary dj’s and the passivity, expectation and desires of the audience. As stereo 8 mixed at the turntables, he projected slides stating the titles, artists and recording information of upcoming work. Within the realm of electronic music… the music (composer) generally takes on a faceless, nameless position and it is the dj who is remembered as a face to the music. This simple, systematic presentation, where the imagery is a literal definition of the sound, countered the glamour and mystery of club culture atmosphere.
